Snip to my lou, my darling

Is everyone else already in love with the Snipping Tool? I didn’t even know about it until my co-worker Cees passed me the ST pipe, now I can’t get enough. I bet you already know about it. But if you don’t, this just in: This Snipping Tool Will Change Your Life.

You can cut out anything you see on your screen, in circles or squares and then write on it and highlight then send it or save it or anything. Don’t tell Live Writer but I’m going to start seeing Snipping Tool on the side, if you know what I mean.* In related news: “Chicken in the bread pan kickin’ out dough,” if you know what I mean.


You have it in Vista and 7 –> Programs –> Accessories –> Ye Olde Snipping Tool


* It’s unclear what is meant.

* My name breaks over two lines in my little welcome menu. I wonder if that happens to one-time loves Tino Donderwinkel and Ravi Bahamidapati. I bet it does not happen to my co-worker Tao Li.

    Trika, do you laugh aloud as your craft your prose?

    BTW, to the point of your post, the Snipping Tool is indeed a lovely squeeze.  Yet neglect not, my fellow fans of OneNote, Win+S for a quickie screen scrape.

    I already knew about the Snipping Tool, but I always thought it was "pickin’ out dough".

    So I still learned something!  🙂

    T – it might very well be pickin’. I think that makes more sense than kickin’

    Jimmy May, am I supposed to love OneNote, too? Like a parent, I can’t love more than one at a time. There’s only so much to go around.
